 HIGH END PACKAGE OFFERS COMPLETE CAD SOLUTION
 CHICAGO, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- American Small Business Computers Inc. (ASBC) begins shipping new DesignCAD Professional, the company's first high end CAD package. DesignCAD Professional combines the power of DesignCAD 2D, DesignCAD 3D, ScanPro, (raster-to-vector conversion), DesignSYM Professional Symbols Library, SmartEST estimating program, and three video training tapes into one high end package.
 Bruce Taylor, president stated, "This combination offers users the complete CAD solution, everything the user needs in one low priced package. The user will never have to purchase another CAD product. We're very excited about DesignCAD Professional!"
 DesignCAD 2D version 5.0 has over 200 commands to assist the user in creating any two dimensional drawing. To help with those 200 commands DesginCAD 2D has pull down menus and a context sensitive "on-line manual" which gives the user a complete description of every DesignCAD command, all at the touch of a button. Over 300,000 DesignCAD 2D packages have been sold thus far and is being used by the likes of NASA, General Dynamics and other Fortune 500 companies.
 DesignCAD 3D is an award winning, powerful, 3-D solid modeling package that sports full Boolean operations, realistic and quick shading, and a materials library. A context sensitive "on-line manual" is included along with the BasicCAD programming language which lets you write your own commands and input points by means other than mouse and keyboard. DesignCAD 3D version 4.0 is 3 to 5 times faster than the previous version and adds complete control over multiple light sources for greatly improved rendering. Requirements are an MS- DOS system with 2 Meg RAM and a hard disk.
 The 2D/3D combination givers users flexibility to use the package which best suits their application: 2D for plan or construction-type drawings, and 3D for modeling and perspectives.
 ScanPro is a raster to vector conversion software package that, with one's scanner, converts paper drawings into DesignCAD drawings with incredible accuracy. ScanPro converts greatly detailed drawings easily. Users do not have to re-draw existing drawings into their new DesignCAD Professional system--just scan them in.
 The DesignSYM Professional Symbols Library gives the user over 6,700 pre-drawn symbols in just about every area: Engineering to architectureal, landscaping to cabinet making, civil engineering to interior design--if there is a symbol for it, chances are DesignSYM has it. DesignSYM is the largest and most economical CAD symbols library on the market today.
 The SmartEST estimating program is a tool to estimate or bid any type of work. Extensions of costs, prices, order quantities, and makups automatically performed. Appropriate information trasferred automatically from DesignCAD to SmartEST.
 DesignCAD Professional includes three professionally produced video tapes: A Quick Start to DesignCAD 2D, A Quick Start to DesignCAD 3D, and Learning ScanPro. These tapes take you through DesignCAD Professional from installation to complex commands all in the time it takes to watch a video. Users can learn the Professional package in their own home or anywhere there is a VCR.
 Purchasing all these products seperately costs $1,917. However, DesignCAD Professional lists for only $995, a savings of almost 50 percent - the first time ABSC has ever bundled its own software. (Current users of DesignCAD 2D or DesignCAD 3D can upgrade to DesignCAD Professional for only $299).
 DesignCAD Professional is available through dealers worldwide and through American Small Business Computers Inc., One American Way, Pryor, OK 74361, phone 918-825-4844, fax 918-825-6359.
